Landscaping: making land enjoyable

The term Landscaping, or landscape architecture, brings to mind English-style historic parks and gardens and, why not, one’s own back garden.
It is a term in everyday usage, especially in relation to redevelopment of abandoned industrial areas or decayed city districts. All these types of projects have a common denominator: making the urban, industrial or rural landscape more enjoyable.
This tendency to improve our environment finds expression, for instance, in the latest landscaping projects in Norway, where landmarks at panoramic points on the landscape pay homage to our most important resource: nature.
Enjoyability is the crucial point, even in smaller-scale projects, in the back garden, balcony or patio: a green corner to relax in.
This is where porcelain stoneware tiles come in, combining versatile colours and styles with outstanding technical properties such as a high friction coefficient, frostproofness and resistance to dirt or chemical substances, as revealed by use of various types of Ariostea Natural High-Tech Stone in projects skilfully combining natural and artificial elements.
